Mouthfeel: Spicy, full bodied, super creamy.
Overall: Amazing amazing! I was doing backflips for it. I hope Ballast Point considers this for AT LEAST a once a year release.

Phone rate at Tiger!Tiger! Many pours over the last couple weeks. Black with beige head. Dark chocolate and coconut dominate, lime and roasted malt, mod amount of earthy spice. Flavor is still pretty tropical with the coconut lime notes, fairly earthy with bitterness at a 3, spicy heat at a 2-3. Alcohol well masked, alcohol too. Medium body, low mod carbonation. I didnít love the first glass. 2-3-4 and five I loved it.

On tap at the ginger man. Pours a very dark brown smell is a sweet spice but canít place the type of spice. Incredible aroma. Taste is very earthly with a little clove and cinnamon. There is a distinct burn on the palate which is unique and awesome. Not something I want more than a few sips of, but the few sips I took were terrific. I am rating it on the taste after a few sips. Not a whole glass, which would be too much

Pours a dark brown with a lighter brown head. Prominent notes of curry and coconut. Hints of thyme and chocolate. Iíve never had a beer quite like this. Bonus points for uniqueness alone.

Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of curry, coconut and vanilla. Taste is lime, curry, pepper and coconut. Nice heat that creeps in at the finish. Wow this is so complex. Smooth and fairly easy to drink however the heat intensifies as you drink

20121215 750ml from Canalís in Marlton, NJ. This one inspired me to log in for a rare online rate. Darkest cola brown with fleeting beige head then sort of flat and dull looking. Macaroon aroma with mild peat and light milk chocolate. Body is soft, creamy, coating, sticky. Flavor is spot on for the deScription: a nice coconut curry with slight hints of lime and a mild peppery burn. Love this beer, and at seven percent I could drink a mess of it. Wait, itís curry flavored so it should be a nice hangover cure, too, right? Excellent stuff.

Pours a dark brown with beige head and lacing. Aroma of strong coconut, I mean strong, cumin, curry, almost like a Indian. I love this beer, can't believe it but I do. It tastes just like it smells with some pepper burn at the end. This is well brewed!

Black with a thick tan head which quickly dissipates. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla and a bit of Indian spices. Curry is especially noticeable. Flavor is roasted malt a bit of sweet vanilla and madras curry. Curry is actually more earthy than spicy, but the cayenne kicks in at the end. Spice leaves an interesting impression, but itís not overpowering. If you like spicy food and stouts, youíll probably enjoy this.

THOUGHTS: Equal parts stout and Indian spice rack; then dusted with a little tropical flare. Nearly too intense flavor-wise. A truly unique beer. You can really taste all the special ingredients. Great aroma and flavor, but a little too heavy handed on them as well. This bottle was over two months past the enjoy by date and the spices were still very intense. I canít imagine how intense the spices must have been when it was fresh. The spices pretty much play the balancing role to the malt instead of hops with this beer. Bonus points for the crazy idea and for executing it.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/22/2013. Bottle. Poured a very dark brown that was basically opaque black in the glass with a small, light brown head that fully diminished. The aroma contained heavy roasted malt and dark chocolate; and coconut milk, cumin, spicy cayenne, coconut, curry, and hints of lime. The initial flavor was moderately sweet, heavily spicy and slightly sour and bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and spicy and lightly sour with a duration that was short on flavor but long on heat. There was chocolate syrup, coconut, lime, curry, cayenne, cumin, chocolate, roasted malt , chocolate and pepper. The medium to fully body was oily with somewhat soft but tingly carbonation and a spicy finish.
